I skin pick- mainly my scalp - and eat the scabs. (See my other posts on this site re this issue) However, even more abhorrently, I pick poo out of my bum. This started two years ago after I had had colonic irrigation a couple of times as I never felt that my bowel was properly emptied. (I have IBS) I didn't think that the colonics really did any good, but I became obsessed about what was up there ready (or not) to be passed... Even more than skin picking, this habit/compulsion revolts me, as well as it being totally unhygenic (I do it in the shower and have been known to do it while showering at other people's houses, in hotels, at the gym). It's absolutley VILE!!!! But I can't rest if I find there's a scab on my head or bits of stool in my rectum. Does anyone else in the world do this? It's a search that I've tried many times on google but doesn't come up with anything so I feel like the world's only poo-picking freak. But I've found, to my relief, that I wasn't the only scalp picker so that's why I'm now admitting this too.
